High Density Polyethylene Pipes and Fittings to Witness High Demand
The high density polyethylene segment accounted for a significant share of the global polyethylene pipes & fittings market in 2019, as HDPE is highly moldable and relatively inexpensive material. HDPE pipes sustain high-pressure water flows. These pipes are used in underground water systems; plumbing, drainage, and sewage infrastructure; and farm irrigation systems. The demand for LDPE material in pipes and fittings is projected to rise at a significant pace during the forecast period, owing to the property of the material to withstand higher temperatures vis-à-vis HDPE. LDPE offers various advantages such as safety of potable water; long-term reliability; and resistance to corrosion, tuberculation, and deposits.
